On Dec 26, I had a powerful conversation with a friend about mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience. [source]
We also talked about tapping into deep old sorrows and purging them. Mindfulness can bring us to those places and allow us to release. She talked about tears streaming, mascara running and uncontrollable yawning as she released a deep-rooted sorrow. She says she feels amazing now.
Write or draw about your experience (if any) with mindfulness.
Today’s guest speaker, Alicia Love:
The Mindful Revolution is a student-run initiative at the University of Pennsylvania, exploring how mindfulness, positive psychology, and character development can transform the education system from the inside out—at the level of the students themselves. Their goal is to raise awareness on the implications of minding one’s internal health—emotionally, socially, and psychologically.
